In justice news, there’s no still RCMP confirmation but, we have an unofficial report today, of another armed robbery at the Charlie Lake Store.

Indications are it occurred between 11 o’clock and midnight last night and, that a suspect may have been armed with a shotgun.

Meantime, you can add the collective voice of an advocacy group for the disabled to those, who say police using Tasers should get better training in dealing with people with disabilities.

To make its point, the BC Coalition of Disabilities sites, the cases of two disabled men, who walk with a limp

Gary Williams of Kamloops says he was stunned three times, during an altercation with police in 2005.

Aeron Hall of Merritt says he was jolted seven times, including once in the genitals, in a 2004 incident.

Both men admit they had been drinking but, both insist police had no cause to arrest them.

The Coalition calls the cases examples of abuse of power, as well as the need for better police training…but, the RCMP claims officers are sufficiently trained now, to tell the difference, between drunks and the disabled.
